Published 1985


Munchers was a series of educational/edutainment computer games produced by the Minnesota Educational Computing Consortium (MECC) for several operating systems. They were popular among American schoolchildren in the 1980s and 1990s and were the recipients of several awards. The two original games in the series were Number Munchers and Word Munchers.

Word Munchers is an educational game designed to teach basic grammar skills, it was popular among American schoolchildren in the 1980s and 1990s. Related to the game Number Munchers, it was a teaching aid widely used in schools.

Gameplay was essentially that of the other Munchers games. Specific to Word Munchers were the modes of play, which includes parts of speech such as verbs or adjectives. Teachers had the options to select the vowel sounds and how difficult the word sets would be, such as whether or not to include words that break pronunciation rules.

Subject: Excellent Game since the 90's
A very amazing 90's game...I grew up playing this in Elementary...it is one of the most successful educational games I've ever played...I wish the company would remake this game for the new generation and possibly re-revolutionize educational gaming. This game and Number Munchers offered unique challenges. The Game came out 5 years before I was born...and I'm thankful I got to relive my childhood...thanks whoever posted this.
